Running two WordPress sites using Apache, first one is redirecting to the other? SSL w/ LetsEncrypt, 16.04
I’m having a problem where my domain davidparrella.com is being redirected to another wordpress site on my server, 512filmfestival.com.
Some older (2013) tutorials seem to say that for multiple WordPress sites I would need Docker, but newer posts on the community seem to have people running multiple WordPress sites just fine using Apache normally to redirect domains.
I also have two other static HTML sites on this droplet which are not affected by this glitch, and they get directed to their appropriate folders normally.
Here’s what I did:
I started a WordPress site with the domain davidparrella.com, DNS server is pointed to my droplet IP with an A record. This is in the directory /var/www/dp
I then (months later) started another WordPress site with another domain (and separate databases), 512filmfestival.com, DNS server pointed the same way. I encrypted it with LetsEncrypt, and then also encrypted my first wordpress site as well. This site is in the directory /var/www/512
My hostname for the machine is:
My hosts file has 127.0.1.1 as davidparrella.com
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can’t seem to track this one down…
